BECOME A JUDGE
Interested in being a debate judge? We’d love to have you. Here at MDUDL, we often offer judge training in the mornings of each of our events so see our tournament calendar and click the link of which shift you’d like to sign up for.
Our next debate is TBA, 9am-6pm EST and we have two shift options for judges. Shift ONE is 9am-1pm and Shift TWO is 2pm-6pm. There will be a judge training before the first shirt and an awards ceremony after the last one, these are non-mandatory for judges, but encouraged.
We also offer monthly judge trainings to ensure our judges are confident and prepared to judge. We can schedule trainings as requested.
